Abstract:

The concept of pre-virtualization offers new ways for building a virtual machine monitor. It is now possible to implement a virtual machine monitor in user-mode without suffering the hassle of other approaches such as para-virtualization. This work determines the extents to which a native virtual machine monitor may be implemented under Windows NT. A design proposal will be devised for an user-mode virtual machine monitor underWindows NT which supports paging, synchronous interrupt delivery and timer virtualization. Finally, the basics of implementing a native Windows NT virtual machine monitor are discussed.
